    I have searchv as my homepage. I've run Spybot, Adaware and Hijackthis and nothing can get rid of it. Can anyone please help me.


    I've looked at the other threads and they have only confused me so any help will be greatly appreciated.

    you have a couple of other problems as well

    run hijackthis, tick all below, doublecheck to make sure you haven't missed any, close all browser windows & press fix checked
